We want to personally welcome you to First United Methodist Church in Colorado Springs, where our church has a long and rich history of effective ministry and to invite you to worship with us at our 8:00 Informal Traditional Worship service on Sunday morning. This early service has a "small town feel in the middle of the big city." We gather in Lehmberg Chapel on the corner of Boulder and Nevada where we get to know one another, pray for one another, gather around good music and great preaching. You can experience our 8:00 Informal Traditional service in-person or online. FUMC is a large, faithful community that has led the city of Colorado Springs with the powerful preaching, high quality music for 150 years. If you feel drawn to community and connection, this service is for you.
Holy Communion, open to all, is served on the first Sunday of each month (except July).
Our 8:00 informal traditional service is open to in-person worship! We are not requiring registration at this time. Nor are we requiring masks but we are asking that we care for one another by respecting others need to wear masks and keep physical distance for those not fully vaccinated or just more comfortable with their masks. August 29th we will kick-off our fall programing. So, look for more information as we get closer to August!
Sunday School Classes
Growing in our faith together is an important part of First United Methodist Church. One way we grow together is by gathering in groups to study, connect, and pray together. People of all ages gather after worship for Sunday School. For those that attend the 8:00 worship services, they meet after worship from 9:30 to 10:30 in various locations throughout the church. In gathering together, we are transformed by God's grace through the study, praying, and fellowship of the class. We invite you to become part of one of our classes so that you may be transformed. Visitors are welcome in all classes.
